North Macedonia vs England LIVE: Euro 2024 qualifier score and updates as Jack Grealish equaliser disallowed

Southgate – ‘Performance is priority’ against ‘injured’ North Macedonia

England have arrived in Skopje for the final match of the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign when they take on North Macedonia this evening.

The Three Lions are hoping to qualify without losing as they are unbeaten in 7 matches so far, winning 6 and drawing 1 against Ukraine. They have booked a place in the tournament in Germany next summer and are guaranteed to top Group C.

Gareth Southgate’s side beat Malta 2-0 at Wembley on Friday night but they were slow and disjointed, meaning the manager will be looking for a much-improved performance in tonight’s game .

North Macedonia are fourth in the group having only beaten Malta so far. Earlier in the campaign, they drew 1-1 with Italy and performed well against the European champions last time out before losing 5-2. With home field advantage, the home team will cause difficulties for England if they are not at their best.

Phil Foden tried to find his way into the box at the other end but there were seven defenders around him and only Ollie Watkins was a viable option to advance the ball.

HT North Macedonia 1-0 England

There will be a lot of discussion about the penalty awarded to England but it was balanced.

Harry Maguire was lucky not to concede at the start of the first half despite a VAR check and Rico Lewis was unlucky to concede a goal due to his stray hand jumping.

England is in decline again. At times, they played with two men at the back without being able to clinically convert the ball into attack.

There needs to be more breakthroughs in their playing style. There’s a lot to do in the second half.
